    Longest National Automotive Strike in Nearly 50 Years Ends

    Detroit ̶ UAW General Motors members ratified the 2019 Collective Bargaining Agreement this evening ending the longest automotive strike in 50 years.

    “General Motors members have spoken,” said Terry Dittes, UAW Vice President and Director of the UAW-GM Department. “We are all so incredibly proud of UAW-GM members who captured the hearts and minds of a nation. Their sacrifice and courageous stand addressed the two-tier wages structure and permanent temporary worker classification that has plagued working class Americans.”

    With ratification of the contract, the UAW members strike has ended, and workers will begin to report to work as instructed by General Motors.

    The ratified contract includes an economic package of an $11,000 per member signing bonus, performance bonuses, two 3% annual raises and two 4% lump sum payments and holding the line on health care costs.

    “We want to once again thank our members’ families and their local communities for their outpouring of support,” said UAW President Gary Jones. “Our members not only joined together in solidarity but felt the support of their whole community throughout this important stand.”

    The UAW will announce the next pattern bargaining company, FCA or Ford shortly.

            Maybe the most important question: When can I start pestering my dealer for DOSP dates? Any chance to salvage one in October?

                Agreement delivers industry-leading wage and benefit package to U.S. hourly workforce Grows GM’s U.S. manufacturing operations with investment of $7.7 billion and 9,000 jobs

                2019-10-25

                Highlights:
                • Wage increases or lump sum payments provided in each of the four years
                • Retains world-class health care coverage at no additional cost to employees
                • Enhanced employee profit sharing
                • Shortens grow-in period for in-progression employees
                • A clear path for temporary employees to become permanent employees and grow to highest wage levels

                DETROIT – General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) today announced that GM team members have ratified a new four-year labor agreement covering employees at 55 UAW-represented sites across the U.S. The new agreement provides GM hourly workers with a world-class wage, benefit and profit-sharing package.

                “We delivered a contract that recognizes our employees for the important contributions they make to the overall success of the company, with a strong wage and benefit package and additional investment and job growth in our U.S. operations,” said Mary Barra, GM Chairman and CEO. “GM is proud to provide good-paying jobs to tens of thousands of employees in America and to grow our substantial investment in the U.S. As one team, we can move forward and stay focused on our priorities of safety and building high-quality cars, trucks and crossovers for our customers.”

                The new, four-year agreement rewards the hard work of GM’s hourly employees, helping support families and communities across the U.S. Details include:
                • 3% wage increases or 4% lump sum payments in each of the four years of the contract
                • Retention of world-class health care coverage, preserving the current 3% cost to employees
                • An $11,000 contract signing bonus for regular employees, and $4,500 for temporary employees
                • Enhanced employee profit-sharing, including no cap on our employees’ ability to share in the company’s profits
                • A clear path for temporary employees to transition to permanent employment after three years of service, beginning in January 2020 for eligible employees with accrued time.
                GM’s planned investments of $7.7 billion in the U.S. include:
                • The opportunity to bring an all-new electric pickup truck assigned to Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly – securing the future of the plant and creating the potential for future new products to be built in the city of Detroit
                • More than $4 billion for additional vehicle programs and existing facility improvements across its U.S. plants.
                • Additionally, GM is moving forward with opportunities for future investments and job growth in Mahoning Valley in Ohio. These investments are outside the national agreement:
                • An opportunity to bring battery cell production to the area, which would create 1,000 manufacturing jobs
                • The sale of the GM Lordstown complex to Lordstown Motors Corp., a new company that plans to build electric pickups for commercial fleet customers. Lordstown Motors Corp. plans to create 400 manufacturing jobs initially.

                  Probably those who are part of the “plant engineering team,” including of course getting the miles of conveyor belts, all the assembling-machinery “lubricated,” paint shops activated, and similar activities ready to resume movement/work.

                    The cost of manufacturing in the USA is high indeed, and almost unsustainable. I am, however, happy that Corvettes are made here.

                            My Blade Silver was supposed to be "unconstrained" for the Nov. consensus. Wonder if that will happen. They need to take their time and do it right.

                            Great reporting John.

                              Behind the scenes the C8 leadership crew is scrambling tonight, but at the same time, IMO they have been doing “what ifs” for many weeks now, so perhaps they laid down the PERT chart (LOL) a couple of hours ago and have already starting working their way down its activities. Even if so, it is sure going to take time until the C7 production is over and the plant is fully upgraded to its final C8 assembly structures. We need to remember that they allocated eight (8) weeks for the plant conversion alone, so things are not going to happen as quickly as any of us wish.

                              But once the C8 conversion upgrade its done, then the real fun begins!!!
